Eight is Great!

You, my Oldest boy, are eight!  (This was last month already).

An army scene by special request. He's into patriotism right now ~ especially our Star Spangled banner.

And that is great.

Great that you get to grow up, take on new things, and discover more of what this life has.

Great that you are now a brother to three siblings, and a wonderful one at that.

Great that you are moving beyond childhood into what some have termed, the TWEEN years.  Wowzers!DSCN3613

Great that you are growing in grace and learning more of God’s love as you handle some of the more difficult things of this life.

Great that you are taking on the hard things that you’ve been given, and learning to make lemonade instead of throw rotten fruit.

Great that you find joy in righteousness, and seek after truth .

And, great that you are our boy, forever and always.  DSCN3610

We love you, Big Brother!
